Webinar platform and technology by KUDO

Abstract:

There are a number of virtual interpreting technologies (VIT) available. At the moment the number is in the 60's and more are entering the market. VIT allows interpreters to work remotely, whether this is over a video call, phone call or chat. This webinar will look at the challenges and opportunities for interpreters using VIT and will be focusing on community interpreters specifically. We will be considering not only how VIT is used, but the technology landscape as a whole, including the tools, platforms, and features available, as well as the evolution of VIT. This webinar will include updated research findings presented here, for the first time.
